A LEADING UK law firm has suspended two trainee solicitors after they were accused of ambulance-chasing victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
A spokesman for Leigh Day said: “Leigh Day have no prior knowledge of the posters displayed around the Grenfell Tower brought to our attention by The Times newspaper.
“As soon as the posters were brought to our attention, a full internal investigation was commenced under formal protocols. The two individuals concerned have been suspended whilst this investigation takes place.
“Leigh Day would never have given authority for the posters or their display and we are taking this matter extremely seriously.”
The North Kensington Law Centre, which is helping over 100 people who lived in the tower, said it was very concerned that families were vulnerable to exploitation.
As it stands, Leigh Day has no clients connected to Grenfell.
Last month, three Leigh Day lawyers accused of improperly pursuing murder and torture claims against British troops in Iraq were cleared of any wrongdoing.
